From the arrival of James Beard Award winning chefs to vibrant food tours, Miami Beach is now an international hub for epicurean experiences.

Miami Beach has truly become a foodie’s paradise,” says Peggy Benua, Chair of the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority (MBVCA). “Guests can expect nothing short of spectacular culinary adventures when visiting Miami Beach by trying one of our new restaurants or partaking in the famous South Beach Food Tour, the options are endless.”

Whether guests have an appetite for the Southern classic, fried chicken and waffles or a superfood açai bowl with a Tofurky burger after beach yoga, the Miami Beach food scene has something for everyone and for residents and visitors, the options keep growing. In the last few months, over 8 new highly-anticipated restaurants have opened, ranging from all-day sushi bars to acclaimed New York City cocktail bars.

Miami Beach is like no other place in the world,” says Grisette Roque, Executive Director of the MBVCA. “We continue to attract award-winning chefs and diners from across the world, demonstrating that Miami Beach has truly evolved into a culinary capitol.”

This month is a special time for foodies in Miami Beach as more than 60,000 chefs, restaurant connoisseurs and food enthusiasts will flock for the annual the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SOBEWFF®).
